He is going to be excellent. I’d guess multiple time AA.

I think he will end up being a 149-165 at various points. He is huge for his weight. That’s a more recent thing though. When he won his first title he was small. 
  
Having only 3 losses in PA so far is incredibly impressive. He also doesn’t beat the top kids just on strength, speed, etc. His wrestling is pretty refined. 
  
I think he is a great fit for the program

I'll say... yes, he's ranked #2 @132 (FLO '20-'21 HS rankings),) behind Nic Bouzakis of Wyoming Seminary (who's a beast and a half himself! B>O. )

P4P... he's ranked 8th.

Outstanding pickup by LEHIGH.

Bouzakis is amazing. I’m not convinced he has a better D1 career than Crookham however. 
  
Bouzakis is so far ahead physically than everyone in high school, including Crookham, that I’m concerned he relies on it a bit too much. Granted he is also an excellent wrestler without those attributes. 
  
I have noticed though that often times in takes kids like that a few years to adjust to having half of their opponents on their level physically. 
  
I could be way off. Bouzakis might be a 4 time AA. He is damn good.
